I don’t drink wine.
I do appreciate our Canadian neighbors to the north.
Had a scrap piece of matarial from a cutting board I use in the RV.
Walnut and oak finished with spray lacquer or liquor (I don’t remember which).

Thanks for notic’n….................

Hey, will those things hold Peppermint Schnapps, too?

If so, that opens a whole universe of possibilities.

Looks like it works. I can’t help but wonder if the bottles neck could fail given the proportions of the bottle.

Nice. I like the router work. Was that on Cove or a Ogee bit?

On behalf of my fellow Canadians, we appreciate your love of our distilling.

I enjoy it too, along with the original “water of life”, Scotch whiskey. Then there’s a wee drop o’ the Irish, or a nice dram of 151 proof Navy rum.

From our friends down under, I’m partial to some of their brews.

South Africa puts out some excellent red wines.

Israel’s Sabra (made from Jaffa oranges) is delicious.

Oh heck, bring on the Everclear! :)

I’d make them for whiskey if the bottles were consistent enough.

They say there are three things those of us lucky enough to be from Canada do very, very well. Those three things are drink, fight, and insure upon future generations.
These balancers do highlight our nicely blended whiskeys we end up calling Rye.

I’ve been to Canada three times and loved every moment. That looks like a gift that should be given out at the border when coming back to the States.

Have your say...
